Demo Day is Coming for Diamond Jacks in Bossier
January Was a Big Month for the New Developers of the Old Diamond Jacks Casino.
The Louisiana Gaming Control Board approved the plan to demolish the once-thriving casino in order for construction to be a possibility. This building has been empty for nearly 3 years and it is s safe to say no one thought that the building would be empty for so long. It has been such a sad sight to watch this building deteriorate before our eyes.
This Brand New Casino and Hotel Is Estimated to Be a $190 Million Project.
We won't be able to recognize the spot we once knew as Diamond Jacks. The facility will have a brand-new hotel, a brand-new gaming space, retail shops, a spa, and an all-new sportsbook betting lounge.
Foundation Gaming was granted approval on their acquisition of the license to operate a land-based casino previously occupied by Diamond Jacks Casino in Bossier City back in January. However, everyone was waiting on the okay to start the grand demolition. The good news is there are no reports of endangered bats occupying the old Diamond Jacks, so we should be good to go for the demolition.
Bossier City Mayor Tommy Chandler Met with the Foundation Gaming Board on Thursday, February 2nd.
According to a report from KTBS we will be seeing construction crews taking over the old Diamond Jacks space later this month to start the demolition.
